1334 socks knit in 76 days, and, boy, are my arms tired.... That's 17.55 socks a day, and 67% of the way to our goal of 2000, with 289 days left - 79% of the year.

Holy cow, y'all.

Reporting has slowed significantly, but we're obviously still trucking along quite happily. And don't forget, the 2000th sock earns a heck of a haul, so keep on knitting!


Well, I have lots of exciting photos to show you, but iPhoto isn't cooperating with my Easy Share camera. There's been some foul language, some suggestion that perhaps the "Easy" isn't meant in a flattering way, some yo-momma trash talking... it's been really shameful.

Of course, I mean all of this has gone on between the camera and the computer. I have found it quite offensive to my delicate feminine sensibilities.

But finally I sit, surrounded by fingernails and hair weaves scattered about the room, and at last, the pictures you have yearned for.

I made this for a certain someone - know who? It's a bona fide soap turtle - a bar of soap fits inside the shell, so it will make a super fun bathtub toy. No pattern, made up on the spot, but if anyone really wants it, I can write it out and post it or something.

Tonight I was at Joann's picking up fabric for another project, and I saw this.
So of course they came home with me. And when I showed it to the girls, Laura said "Oh, how cute! Now if you find out someone you know is having a baby, you've already got a gift ready!"

I know. She's nice otherwise, really, but...

Give it away????

The baby blanket in the little set will likely go on the back of the armchair for the cats, since right now they're sleeping on the remnants of the very first sweater I knit. I knit it before I really and truly understood the concept of gauge. Now everyonce in a while when I need a scrap of wool I frog a bit of the sweater and use that. Because I will never fit into this sweater.

The family armchair does, though...


Last but not least are some beautiful roses sent by my ever-absent husband. It's hard to be apart....

Finished another sock, so add one more. And I'd like to donate to #1,999, #2,001 and #2,006 as well as #1,763.

Yep, I think that turtle is really cute. I love turtles, and I'd love the pattern. Can you email it to me one of these days? No hurry. A turtle's pace is fine.

That soap turtle is cute! Of course I'd hate to see what you'd come up with for a PuppyMomma.

LOL! That's one hell of a gauntlet to drop! I am curious to see what you come up with.

I named him Soapy btw. He's got a bar of peppermint tea-tree in him right now. YUM.

Do yoga socks count? If so, add another sock to the counter from me!
